These variations involve fairly complex techniques including left hand pizzicato,
double stopping, harmonics and 3 and 4 part chords.
First verse of the original song:
Hark when the night is falling
Hear! Hear the pipes are calling,
Loudly and proudly calling
Down thro’ the glen.
There where the hills are sleeping,
Now feel the blood a-leaping,
High as the spirits
Of the old Highland men.
